7:03 pm
the day and crabtree as they catch the ravens defense slipping. taliaferro ties it up. 30 apiece in the fourth quarter. carr has the football. >> carr has gone for 280 yards. two touchdowns, that pass is complete. michael crabtree who had the touchdown earlier just outside the 25-yard line to pick up six. >> neither team has been able to mount much of a pass rush on the quarterback. that's why both quarterbacks have had huge games here today. carr has gotten into rhythm. i think his receivers, cooper, crabtree, holmes and reece have had big games. they have to continue to make plays and learn how to win as a young football team. >> tight end in motion, drop play. murray, crosses the 25, close to the 29-yard line. amari cooper, the fourth
7:04 pm
overall pick, first 100 yard receiving game of his young career. 97 yards for crabtree and steve smith a buck fifty for the raven. >> amari cooper. both teams want it badly. >> 10 catches by the way for steve smith sr., the most for him in a game since october 14th of 2007. big third and 1 played here. it is murray first down oakland. let's see where they spot the football. the momentum takes him to the 33. a big oakland first down. >> never miss a moment of football action with the sports app. every play, story and highlight as they happen. download the cbs sports app right now. >> this is the week two
7:05 pm
showdown on what a clash this has been. first and 10, carr from the gun. from their own 33. off to murray, crabtree, it's intercepted. will hill. baltimore needed something from its defense and their safety provides it. 25 yards on the return. monstrous play by hill. >> hill just sits on it. he is in center field. here he is right here. just watch him. watch him track this ball thrown from carr. this one is sort of flutter, it just hangs and crabtree falls down but hill does a good job of high planing the football. if you're carr you have to throw it close to the sideline. if you hang it up there hill
7:06 pm
will make a play on it. a throw that derek carr wishes he had back. >> only the fourth interception of a career of will hill and his second as a raven. resurrected his career after the off the field issues with the giants. flacco and his offense a short field. first and 10. a little cut back maneuver. first down catch. 11 yards for aiken. his fifth catch as he approaches 90 yards receiver. >> both quarterbacks have a huge day. may come back to the one with the costly error in the fourth quarter. flacco wants his defense to give him the ball. >> bull rush from taliaferro brought down from autry. you get the sense oakland defense sucking wind as baltimore trying to jam it right down their thoets. >> they've given up nearly 500
7:07 pm
yards offense to the baltimore ravens. 485 right now. flacco 385 yards through the air. tight ends have been red hot. right now let's see if he can find gillmore to convert the second downplay. >> second and 6. taliaferro trying to wear them down. moves that close to the 17-yard line. five yards for taliaferro tackled by tuck. >> carr says i wish i had that back. allows one bad throw and it turns into a turnover allowing flacco more opportunity to add to his fantasy totals. the ravens are getting a push up front with their offensive line in the run game. >> lineup in the back field. can he find it? able to get the first down. what an effort by justin
7:08 pm
forsett. >> it's a great play design. watch 57, ray-ray armstrong can't get out there to contain the ball. forsett has speed to get around him and enough to hit the corner for a first down and it's plays like that that will wear down a defense. you get them on the run, get them in chase mode and right now they're sucking wind and the ravens are getting stronger as this game goes on. >> that clock is running down. raiders with two time-outs. baltimore with all three. justin forsett a journeyman before last season who was a revelation for this team. sets up a first and 10. able to make the first guy miss. inside the 15. i was just going to ask you if you called a time-out. jack del rio will take it here. as they will have one left and the two-minute warning with 2:25 remaining. a baltimore team that has come back from 10 down twice today
7:09 pm
knocking on the door year. >> clock management is critical in games. we saw it play itself out in day one. coaches not quite managing the time in situations like this. when teams talk about scoring too quickly or maybe, you know, bleeding time off the clock and then scoring. how about just score? the last time-out check you score a point it helps you. right now tied up 30 apiece, more than anything, the a baltimore ravens want to come away with points and more importantly they want to come away with a touchdown. >> flacco on center. play action. flacco rolling out. far side pass incomplete. intended for gillmore. that stops the clock. we're 2:19 to play and a third
7:10 pm
and 8 coming up. >> this is what you see what happens. they run the blitz play to justin forsett on one side. get him running one way, roll out the other. the key is you have to complete those passes. an incompletion stops the clock. you saw john harbaugh wincing. what are we doing? absolutely. you have to call the play that allows the clock to keep running. you throw it to the boundary even if he catches it he will step out of bounds and stop the clock. i think they could have had a betterselection there. >> ravens will go on their first of three time-outs. tonight on cbs begins at 60 minutes and a look at pope francis, big brother and madam secretary. i don't think there was any doubt that john harbaugh was upset with that call from tresman. >> it was a pass that fell incomplete. that will stop the clock in favor of the raiders.
7:11 pm
even if he would have caught it, he would have caught it and stepped out of bounds which would have also stopped the clock. so i'm sure coach harbaugh said you have to give me a play that's better than that. one that would keep the clock moving. >> raiders down to their final time-out and the two-minute warning. oakland will head to cleveland next sunday. and baltimore headed home to take on cincinnati in a tough division battle. third and 8. flacco going. he gets steve smith wide open. incomplete. >> flacco too hard and too high. he had steve smith sr. wide open and watch him throw him right out of bounds. there is the catch. he is trying to stay in. one down. does he get the second one down?
7:12 pm
no, he does not. out of bounds. it was there to be had. he had beaten hayden for the play. you see he was open. harbaugh is like are you kidding me? >> here is justin tucker, good today from 22, 21 and 37. most accurate kicker in nfl history and he is perfect yet again. first lead for the baltimore ravens. a penalty marker is in late. 2:10 to play. fourth quarter. raiders will have one time-out and a two-minute warning. a s referee: after the kick personal foul. unnecessary roughness. number 89 for the defense. field goal is good. 15-yard penalty will be enforced on the the kickoff.
7:13 pm
>> that was amari cooper. he was on the penalty. so they will tack that on the kickoff to come and now the tables are reversed. derek carr and oakland will have to come from behind here as they try to find some late-game magic. >> let's show you how he got open. hayden, a pick play and then watch brown here. he is going to pick him and smith is going to come wide open. this is one that you have to be able to complete. flacco has got time. see how he lofts the ball up and doesn't keep him in the field of play. you have to keep him in the field of play to give him a chance to stay inbounds as he makes the catch. >> here was the penalty. take a look at the middle of your screen.
7:14 pm
the officials have the numbers a little mixed up. it was dan williams the backup defensive tackles, the culprit for the raiders. what about for oakland? carr has been so good and economical. now you need him to go and win a football game. >> he only has one time-out. you get some out breaking routes to be able to catch it. step out of bounds. still plenty of time right here, okay? by virtue of where the ravens are kicking off. you can bet this one is going to go out the back of the end zone and not lose any time here. you've got the two-minute warning. one time-out in your back pocket. you can be patient about what you want to do as a play caller. >> oakland was in front 30-20 at the 2:12 mark of the third quarter. since that point, they have been outscored 13-0 as derek carr waits for his turn on the raider sidelines. tucker booms it through the end
7:15 pm
zone and here comes the raiders second year quarterback out of fresno state. of course, janikowski has a big leg and he can bang it through from a long way away. you have to think that his leg, even though he is not the same kicker he was earlier in his career effects the play calling for oakland. >> he is a weapon. where they are at at the 20-yard line. i like the rhythm passing from carr. getting the hands into the receiver, especially cooper who can create yards after the catch. >> they start from the 20. first and 10 carr. quick throw, breaks the tackle. that will take us to the two-minute warning. they pick up a dozen. oakland down three. you are watching the nfl on cbs.
7:16 pm
7:17 pm
>> tonight on cbs begins with 60 minutes with a look at fort
7:18 pm
francis, big brother and madam secretary. you see the ravens, 13 unanswered points. the first lead of the day. now all eyes on derek carr and his oakland offense. first and 10 just outside their own 30. carr, near side, incomplete. intendeced reiver was michael crabtree. oakland with one time-out left. second and 10. >> they're blitzing right now. they're dialing up the exotic blitzes. no one had their hand in the dirt showing they would be a pass rusher. it was a number of different people who, i think, served as potential pass rushers that forced the early throw from carr. >> murray with carr in the backfield. oakland one time-out left. 1:55 to play. carr one game-winning drive in
7:19 pm
his one plus seasons in the nfl. second and 10. ravens come into the blitz. carr throws, complete. over the middle to rivera. just shy of the 40. seven yards. third down coming up. >> they showed like it was an overload left. the the pressure came from the right. that's why they got the free runner to get the the hit on carr. they're doing everything they can to put pressure on the young quarterback. >> third and 3. murray first down oakland. will hill who had that last interception on the tackle seven yards and a first down. >> they are in no-huddle situation. they have to pick up the tempo. >> 1:13 left. rivera on another catch. that stops the clock. penalty marker thrown. behind the line of scrimmage. >> personal foul. roughing the passer, 97, defense, 15 yards, first down. >> jernigan and what is an
7:20 pm
awfully huge penalty. >> coaches say there are more games lost than that are won. this is how you lose a game for your football team if you are timmy jernigan. you have to make the opponent earn erving they'll get. you can't just give it to him. you just handed the raiders 15 yards and put them within field goal range and close now to scoring a touchdown. >> well within the range of janikowski who owns the second longest field goal in nfl history. 63-yarder back in 2011. first and 10 oakland has that one time-out in their back pocket. another flag thrown. >> raiders can't help themselves. >> false start. number 77, offense, 5-yard penalty. still first down. >> second time austin howard has been penalized.
7:21 pm
16 oakland penalties. >> in critical times like this coaches say don't think play, think players. think about the match-up advantage you can get with an amari cooper, one of your talented tight ends or fullbacks. >> murray slit out the bottom of your screen, first and 15. cooper the rookie, shoots ahead to the 32. maybe the 31. eight yards nifty catch and run from amari cooper. >> i don't think you are burning time but you need to pick up the the pace. get the ball snapped. >> gets into the line of scrimmage. second and 7. fires, it's caught. crabtree. that is a completion and an oakland first down. webb on the coverage, 14 yards on a catch. >> not many quarterbacks can make this throw and strong hands and keep the feet
7:22 pm
inbounds like crabtree did there. textbook work by the veteran receiver. >> what a play as crabtree walks this tight rope on the sideline. now baltimore will burn a time-out. their second. what a finish. high drama here in oakland. we go to new york. j.b. and coach cower. >> the good foot of a red fox. the rookie kicks a 28-yard field goal. jacksonville defense holds on. the jaguars beat miami 23-20. >> thank you, j.b. want to finish. we've had real good finishes today around the nfl. joe flacco, all he could do is helplessly look on after marching his offense down the field with the go-ahead field goal and derek carr, what is he
7:23 pm
thinking on first and 10. >> thinking match-up. i will read the defense. if i get man-to-man coverage, then i'm going to want to get the ball to one of my talented tight ends. look for either rivera, walford or reece who is like a tight end. one of those guys could be getting the ball here. >> first and 10 from the 17. raiders have that one time-out left. carr throws it near side. incomplete. fans want a penalty. no play. >> who did he throw it to? walford. he was matched up against webb. big body on little body. walford goes 6'4", 260. webb 5'10", 180. webb is able to come around the knock the ball down. great play by webb. of course, del rio didn't think so but he has to concede it was an exceptional play. >> webb has been so good he had
7:24 pm
to leave the game early. fight through all his physical ailments last season. second and 10. here comes the ravens on the blitz. will hill, the football comes loose. a pile at the 17, 18-yard line. >> they'll get will hill for holding on the intended receiver. referee: holding, number 33, defense, 5-yard penalty. automatic first down. >> you can only make contact with the intended receiver within five yards. watch hill here. then we'll see the intended receiver come here. look. he has to jam him, right there. using his hands against mychal rivera to get the interception but the official is watching that position all the way down the field. they're having a conversation. hill has to know better.
7:25 pm
you cover with feet, not hands, beyond that five yard boundary. you have to get positioning and be able to read the eyes of the quarterback and break sooner on the play. >> plenty of time for carr and this offense to take shots into the end zone. >> they still have a time-out in their back pocket. >> carr today career high 339 yards passing. a young man who avoided those critical mistakes as a rookie last season. where does he go here on first and 10? carr over the middle. it is caught. oakland touchdown. first catch for seth roberts.
7:26 pm
what a moment for the young man out of west alabama. >> a well-designed play that gets seth roberts in the middle of the field. they split the defense. >> number 51, the linebacker, daryl smith goes too far to the right and they don't kill it off on the back side. so they're able to split the defense. perfect route to the perfect coverage to find an opening into the end zone. janikowski for the point after. derek carr marches oakland nine plays, 80 yards. seth roberts introducing himself to the nfl with what is at the moment the game-winning touchdown catch. >> it's great for the young quarterback derek carr and the
7:27 pm
people in oakland. we told you he is a player. sooner or later you have to start winning ball games in order to live up to the promise he talked about at the beginning of the game. carr began to deliver on the promise with production and winning a ball game. 351 yards, three touchdown passes for the young derek carr, against a good baltimore defense. with 26 seconds left, ever heard of that one play they call the hail mary? i don't know if that's in this book but that's what you're looking at. one shot down to the middle of the field. they still have one time-out left and then another shot down the field into the end zone. >> joe flacco has been so good in terms of game-winning drives in his nfl career. 21 of them. 19 in the regular season. two in the playoffs.
7:28 pm
this may be asking an awful lot here with 26 seconds left and the ravens needing a touchdown. one time-out left. campanaro takes a knee in the end zone and here we go. here comes flacco onto the field. 26 seconds left and one time-out remaining. >> i think you have to take a shot and you can go down the middle of the field because you have that one time-out. depends on the look you get from the defense. but if you can give one-on-one isolation. that wouldn't be steve smith, the 15 tsh year veteran doesn't have that game breaking speed. they miss the first round pick perriman was drafted for reasons like this. look at the formation. flacco, it's intercepted.
7:29 pm
picked off by neiko thorpe. and the raiders are going to win it. >> this defensive formation was det up to take away anything ep down the field. you've got three very deep defenders and there is no way you are going to get the ball around these guys right here. and so the guys in the underneath coverage are going to force you to throw it deep so that these guys on the back end can do this. pick it off. neiko thorpe was underneath but he kept streaking and hustling. stealing a ball away from his own defender to come away with it and kill the gain. >> first interception in a career of neiko thorpe and what a moment for him. a raiders team that was embarrassed as their head coach jack del rio called it, humbled here at home. seven days later what a
7:30 pm
response as they knock off harbaugh and the baltimore ravens. second career game-winning drive for derek carr. career high 351 yards passing and the raiders get their first win of the jack del rio era here in oakland. and what a moment for the east bay native as derek carr leads them to a victory. >> derek carr won it playing this game. came in, banged up all week long. he was not going to miss this game for anything. boy, did he come through for the bay area here today. >> ravens 0-2 for the first time since john harbaugh took over. coming up on cbs, 60 minutes. a rare look at pope francis followed by a new big brother, madam secretary and csi cyber only cbs. now from our entire crew saying so long from oakland. you've been watching the nfl on

7:40 pm
>> kroft: few issues have inspired more vitriol this summer than the historic agreement between iran and six world powers-- the united states, russia, china, britain, france and germany. the deal drastically curtails iran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions. depending on where you stand politically, its either a triumph of global diplomacy, the best available solution, or a blunder of epic proportions. over the past few months, nearly everyone has weighed in, from president obama and the
7:41 pm
congress, to republican and democratic presidential candidates to israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. but not much has been heard from the iranians. with that in mind, we traveled to tehran last week to sit down with iranian president hassan rouhani for the first interview he has given to a western news organization in nearly a year. what do you think of the agreement? >> hassan rouhani ( translated ): a very difficult agreement to reach, with lots of ups and downs. but it's the right path we have chosen. i am happy that we have taken extremely important steps on this issue and are in the process of taking the final steps. >> kroft: were you surprised by the ferocity of the debate in the united states and the outcome? >> rouhani: it was predictable. an issue of this significance cannot be resolved without its opponents. one is surprised by the commentaries, and the commentaries are not very pleasant. some groups and political parties may be against it, but the governments of the world,
7:42 pm
all together, welcomed this deal. >> kroft: opponents have argued that the u.s. has given away too much for very little in return from iran-- agreeing to lift the sanctions on iran in exchange for, what they call, a "temporary 15-year freeze" on nuclear operations, after which iran would be free to resume or begin work on a nuclear bomb, with far more resources than they have now. >> rouhani: if a country wanted, with the technical resources it has, to gain an atomic bomb, this deal would have been a very bad deal for it. because the deal creates limitations from all sides to getting an atomic bomb. but if a country has been after peaceful technology from the beginning, then it has lost nothing. we wanted this incorrect accusation-- that iran is after nuclear weapons-- corrected and resolved, and that the goal of iran is peaceful activity. in this deal, we have accepted
7:43 pm
limitations for a period of time in order to create more trust with the world. >> kroft: the whole deal requires a leap of faith between two longtime enemies. the iranians have always insisted that their nuclear program is peaceful and that a religious fatwah prohibits them from building nuclear weapons. but there is little doubt that the iranians know how to build them and have had the wherewithal to do it. now, they will be required to ship 98% of their enriched uranium out of the country, lock up thousands of centrifuges, close its bomb-proof enrichment facility at fordow, disable its heavy water reactor at arak, and submit to rigorous international inspections. the opposition here has also been ferocious. the deal has been attacked on state television and in hard- line newspapers, and the head of the revolutionary guard has said, "we will never accept it." the united states seems to have its hard-liners and iran seems
7:44 pm
to have its hard-liners. the opponents say essentially that they think iran has given up too much control over their nuclear program to the u.s. and other foreign countries, and to the i.a.e.a. do you see similarities between the united states and iran in terms of the opposition to this? >> rouhani: there are similarities. it's natural that opponents always look for the maximum possible outcome. in an agreement, neither achieves the maximum. both sides must always concede a little bit from the maximum to get an agreement. therefore, the person who seeks the maximum complains. the result of this agreement benefits everyone, benefits both sides because we have been able to reach an understanding, an agreement, on a very complicated issue at the negotiating table and be able to prevent misunderstandings, and take the first step towards trust. of course, for reaching trust between the u.s. and iran, there is need for a lot of time.
7:45 pm
>> kroft: some of the opponents are very powerful. the commander of the revolutionary guards, for example, has condemned the deal. how do you deal with that? that's an important political force in this country. >> rouhani: it's clear that some will be opposed, some will be in favor, will express their opinions. but at the same time, after the agreement is approved by the responsible institutions, everyone will comply with that. the revolutionary guards also, when the deal is approved by responsible institutions, they, too, will respect this agreement. >> kroft: president rouhani's boss, supreme leader ayatolllah ali khamenei, has final say on the final agreement, and has sent it to the iranian parliament and the supreme national security council on national security for a vigorous debate. publicly, the ayatollah has maintained a hard-line stance against the united states, while supporting the negotiations. president rouhani expressed confidence that the deal will be approved.
7:46 pm
>> rouhani: the majority of our people, in opinion polls, have a positive view of the agreement. and usually institutions like the parliament and the supreme national security council are usually not far-removed from public opinion and move in that direction. >> kroft: you have been very temperate in your statements about these negotiations. you have been trying to encourage a sense of good will between the united states and iran, but some of this... some of the success has been undercut by very harsh statements from both sides. since the deal, the ayatollah khamanei has endorsed, even praised, the chanting of "death to america" and "death to israel" at the friday prayers by demonstrators, and he continues to call the united states the "great satan." do you believe the united states is the great satan? >> rouhani: the enmity that existed between the united states and iran over the decades, the distance, the
7:47 pm
disagreements, the lack of trust, will not go away soon. what's important is which direction we are heading. are we heading towards amplifying the enmity or decreasing this enmity? i believe we have taken the first steps towards decreasing this enmity. >> kroft: do you think the united states is the "great satan?" >> rouhani: satan, in our religious parlance, is used to refer to that power that tricks others and whose words are not clear words, do not match reality. what i can say is that the u.s. has made many mistakes in the past regarding iran, and must make up for those mistakes. >> kroft: i'm sure you realize that it is difficult for many americans to get past the fact that president obama has signed an agreement with a country that says, "death to america, death to israel." how do you explain this?
7:48 pm
what are they to make of it? are they to take it literally? is this for domestic, internal iranian political consumption? what are americans to make of it, the language? >> rouhani: this slogan that is chanted is not a slogan against the american people. our people respect the american people. the iranian people are not looking for war with any country. but at the same time, the policies of the united states have been against the national interests of iranian people. it's understandable that people will demonstrate sensitivity to this issue. when the people rose up against the shah, the united states aggressively supported the shah until the last moments. in the eight-year war with iraq, the americans supported saddam. people will not forget these things. we cannot forget the past, but at the same time, our gaze must be towards the future. >> kroft: "death to america" is
7:49 pm
a very simple concept. three words, not much room left for interpretation. not very conciliatory. do you see the day when that language will not be used? you yourself have encouraged both sides to try and lower the temperature. >> rouhani: if america puts the enmity aside, if it initiates good will, and if it compensates for the past, the future situation between the united states and iran will change. >> kroft: the united states has just signed an agreement with iran to lift the sanctions. is that not a sign of goodwill? >> rouhani: it hasn't been implemented yet. the lifting of the sanctions must be initiated. >> kroft: full implementation of the agreement is still months away, and requires that the international atomic energy agency certify that iran has lived up to its commitments under the deal. do you think the level of trust between iran and the united
7:50 pm
states has improved because of this treaty? >> rouhani: relative to the past, it's improved. but this does not mean that all disagreements are resolved, or all the distrust removed. in one case, on one issue, yes, we have managed to overcome the problem. >> kroft: there has been speculation and hope inside and outside of iran and in the united states that this nuclear deal could be a catalyst for some broader, if limited, cooperation between the two countries where there are mutual interests. >> rouhani: many areas exist where, in those areas, it's possible that common goals or common interests may exist. but what is important is that, in the nuclear agreement, we see how the two sides behave in action. enacting this deal in a good way will create a new environment. >> kroft: ayatollah khamenei has
7:51 pm
said that there will be no further cooperation beyond the nuclear agreement, but there is already some indirect military coordination between u.s. air strikes and iranian-backed shiite militias both fighting against isis in iraq. officially, it's being done through the iraqi military. there is also the possibility of future cooperation in syria. you have said that you are willing to sit down with any country, friend or enemy, to discuss the situation in syria in order to stop the bloodshed. what does iran see as a possible, workable, acceptable solution to the situation in syria? >> rouhani: look, in a county where a large segment of the country has been occupied by terrorists, and there is bloodshed inside the country, millions of people have been displaced, how is it possible that we fight the terrorists of this country without supporting and helping the government of that country? how can we fight the terrorists without the government staying?
7:52 pm
of course, after we have fought terrorism and a secure environment is created, then it is time to talk about the constitution or the future regime. to talk and discuss, opposition groups and supporters sit at the table, but during a situation of bloodshed and during an occupation of the country, what options exist? >> kroft: so far, president rouhani has been the biggest political beneficiary of the agreement between iran and the united states. he is popular with the voters right now, but he's also ruffled some feathers and, no doubt, irritated political rivals. this agreement was a big political victory for you, personally. you were elected president based on the idea that you wanted to open up iran to the outside world, that you wanted to get the sanctions lifted, that you wanted to bring prosperity back to the country, so iran can take its place among the great nations of the world and not be isolated. there are still some things in that agenda that are still unfulfilled-- freedom of speech,
7:53 pm
more access to the internet, and personal freedoms. >> rouhani: i think, relative to the two years i've been in office, i have been successful-- not 100% of course, but successful. our relations with other countries have improved. there is more freedom at the universities, lively debates and greater freedom of the press, compared to the past. of course, there are some issues that are not in control of the government. >> kroft: two of those issues, human rights and personal freedoms, are in the domain of iran's conservative judicial system. two former presidential candidates have been under house arrest for the past four and a half years, and there are at least three americans imprisoned here. as we sit here speak the... right now, there is a dual american/iranian citizen, a journalist for the "washington post", jason rezaian, in prison for more than a year on unspecified charges. there has been talk among leaders in the last few weeks
7:54 pm
that there might be a prisoner exchange. is there anything you can say to clarify the situation? >> rouhani: we have iranians who are imprisoned in the united states, iranians who are being pursued, and most of them are being pursued for circumventing the sanctions. and you know that from the beginning, we considered the sanctions to be wrong and we encouraged everyone to circumvent them. we consider all of those prisoners to be innocent, and consider it wrong that they are in prison. >> kroft: would you... would you support a prisoner exchange? >> rouhani: i don't particularly like the word "exchange," but from a humanitarian perspective, if we can take a step, we must do it. the american side must take its own steps. >> kroft: if the nuclear deal stays on track and the sanctions are lifted, the iranian treasury will soon begin collecting $100 billion in oil revenues that have been frozen in overseas banks. and president rouhani says iran
7:55 pm
will be open for business. >> rouhani: as you know, in iran, we are transferring the economy step by step to the private, non-governmental sector. our private sector and the american private sector can improve the environment. actually, it will strengthen the nuclear agreement. even tourism-- if the people of the united states come to iran and see its ancient history and nature of iran, and the people of iran go to the united states to see america, this can shorten the walls of mistrust and improve the situation for the future.

bergoglio was a bouncer at a nightclub, ejecting undesirables. 60 years later, he's still minding the door. but now, as pope francis, he has thrown the catholic church open to all, especially the dispossessed, the disbelieving, the wayward, and the wicked. recently, he announced a welcoming path back to the church for those who've been through divorce and abortion. and he's declared 2016, "the year of mercy." what can we expect when the pope comes to visit? well, we got a preview at a spectacle that's held every wednesday in rome called the general audience. this month, the vatican invited us to have a word with pope francis, and witness the moving experience coming this week to the united states. at first light, wednesdays, st.

peter's square prepares for the man that no one saw coming. the first pope from the new world, who had pulled in behind the first papal resignation in 600 years, grabbed his hat, this past week, and went back to work before a crowd of 30,000 or more-- his 103rd general audience. so far, 15 million have met francis in rome. but don't ask them what to expect, because god only knows. >> ken hackett: do they have a good idea? no! he's a pope of surprises. he is so spontaneous, and it makes people feel wonderful. >> pelley: few americans know the new pope like ken hackett, u.s. ambassador to the holy see, latin for "holy seat." >> hackett: first of all, they're going to see a pastor, and if they don't know what a pastor is, they're going to learn quickly.

because he's genuine. he's intelligent. he moves from the heart. he's somebody who is not afraid. he is about the people who are in need and suffering and going through turmoil in their lives. he is trying to be there with them. >> pelley: and he will be in the u.s. for the first time in his life-- washington, new york, philadelphia. >> hackett: it is such a special moment for so many people, and we're going to see that in the united states in all three cities. >> pelley: those special moments arise because the pope understands what is not obvious. the general audience is not about the pope; it's about thousands of burdens, dreams, hopes and regrets hauled into the square to be lifted by a 78- year-old man. >> david yoder: i have never photographed anything like that before, where you had so much raw emotion just laid out in front of you. >> pelley: the emotion i
